Definitely Cheshire and the place looks like Oughton but that does not appear to exist. However the Gr in the column next to Oughton, which I thought was the column for Blind, Deaf Lunatic etc has been included in the place name on fs so it reads Oughton Gr.

Could it be a mis spelling of Great Boughton?

Thanks Barbara, Peter, Emeltee.

I've had problems all day getting access to this site.

The name depends on which site you use. Looks like Osencroft.

It does look like Oughton Gr.

Can't find anything else for George - no birth, marriage or death and nothing in any other Census. However I have found daughter Eliza's marriage

John Ellis Deakin/ Eliza Houzencroft Dec 1849 Hayfield 19 623

Doesn't really help much as I can't find anything else for her either!
